GOBBLECROSS 2015!!!!!

This years Gobblecross (five) was a success!

results

The weather was amazing and  it was great  to see so many people make the journey out by bicycle to check out the fun!

Congratulations to all of the racers for completing the challenging course!

We never got around to writing the press release detailing the story of ‘Edwards dethrones Timmerman Gobble Legacy’ .. as Kevan became the first A race champion to not be one of the brothers.

For some more info, details, photo links etc, check out the Gobblecross 2015 page.

 

As usual, only the nicest people in all the land showed up to play bicycles. It was great to see everyone.

Thanks for coming out!  We should do it again sometime.

200 on 100 in 9hrs : some dudes from mass

200 on 100 – The Fall of Ryan T Kelly from cycloWHAT? on Vimeo.

These are the dudes from Mass’ that ride some of the same roads as Matt. They are super legit, doing the darn thang on the national and international stage(s).

I like this video because it paints them as normal humans. I can’t wait ’till the snow melts and the days lengthen a bit. 200mi rides are where it’s at.

Can’t wait ’til my favorite CNY holiday… Dante’s Day!!

Tim Johnson is the Man

This interview with Tim Johnson from Manual for Speed is great, he talks about how he got into riding bikes, and the difference between riding for a job, and riding because you love to ride. Tim is from a couple towns over from where I’m from in Massachusetts, and I ride a lot of the same roads/trails as him. This summer I tried my best to run into him on those roads, but was never lucky enough. Would loved to share some pulls with him on the quiet roads of the North Shore!
